IBM® Security Identity Adapter for StealthBits GDPR 7.1.4 - Release notes

IBM Security Identity Adapter for StealthBits GDPR 7.1.4 is available. Compatibility, installation, and other getting-started issues are addressed.




Welcome to the IBM Security Identity Adapter for StealthBits GDPR.

These Release Notes contain information for the following products that was not available when the IBM Security Identity Server manuals were printed:


Adapter Features and Purpose

The StealthBits GDPR Adapter is designed to reconcile Users on resources (Active Directory) that are monitored by StealthBits. The StealthBits GDPR Adapter supports reconciling Support Data (Group/Folder/Files) for user on resources (Active Directory) and filtered reconciliation of users and support data on resources that are monitored by StealthBits. The StealthBits GDPR adapter offers data integration. The adapter runs in "agentless" mode and communicates using JDBC to the systems being managed. IBM recommends the installation of this adapter (and the prerequisite IBM Security Directory Integrator, previously known as IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator) on each node of an IBM Security Identity Server WAS cluster. A single copy of the adapter can handle multiple IBM Security Identity Server Services. 

The deployment configuration is based, in part, on the topology of your network domain, but the primary factor is the planned structure of your IBM Security Identity Server Provisioning Policies and Approval Workflow process. Please refer to the IBM Knowledge Center for a discussion of these topics.

The IBM Security Identity adapters are powerful tools that require Administrator Level authority. Adapters operate much like a human system administrator, creating accounts, permissions and home directories. Operations requested from the IBM Security Identity server will fail if the adapter is not given sufficient authority to perform the requested task. IBM recommends that this adapter run with administrative (root) permissions.



Service Groups Management

IBM Security Identity Server has the ability to manage service groups. By service groups, IBM Security Identity Server is referring to any logical entity that can group accounts together on the managed resource.

Managing service groups implies the following:

     Create service groups on the managed resource.
      Modify attribute of a service group.
      Delete a service group.

Note: Service group name change is not supported.

The StealthBits GDPR Adapter does not support management of service groups.

Addition to Installation Guide:

Following contents should be added as separate sections in installation guide:


IGI Bulk Load - Activities:

The business activities must be defined in IGI before permissions can be mapped to a business   activity.  IGI provides an option to bulk load business activities.

·         Steps to import Activities Bulk Load File

Access Risk Controls

1.     Go to Tools > Bulk Data Load

2.     Using Insert Activities Hierarchy upload the IGI Bulk Load Activities File Insert+Activities+Hierarchy_GDPR.xlsx

3.     Refresh the operation until it is Complete


·         Contents of Activities Bulk Load File

The format, is the pre-determined format of the bulk load files in IGI.





Activity code



Activity name



Environment identifier name



Activity description



Activity parent code


The ENVIRONMENT field is optional. If this field is populated, the existence of an environment with the specified name is verified. Otherwise, the row is skipped. If left blank, the default environment is used (Working Environment).

The CODE and ACTIVITY fields contain the activity code and name, respectively.

The existence of an activity with the given code is verified. If the given name does not match the activity name, the row is skipped. If there is no such activity, it will be inserted.

The PARENT_CODE field is used for positioning the activity in the hierarchy.

If this field is left blank, the activity will be inserted as a child of the root activity. If there is no such activity associated to the given parent code, the activity is inserted as a child of a technical activity called "Undefined", which will be created as needed.

Below table shows contents from a sample bulk load file:





















Credit Cards











To know more details about Bulk Load please refer IGI documentation:



Stealthbits GDPR Adapter’s Taxonomy Mapping properties file.


The taxonomy mapping properties file map the activities names and the criteria ID. The values in taxonomy properties file must be in sync with the values in file used during the IGI bulk load.

The properties file should be present on TDI machine.  Name and path of this file can be specified on IGI StealthBits adapter Service form in field Taxonomy Mapping File Path.


·         Use of Taxonomy mapping properties file:

FILE permissions reconciled by StealthBits GDPR adapter will be mapped to Activity at IGI end. For this mapping IGI rule use attribute erTaxonomyCriteria in File object class.

While creating the File object class entry, adapter search criteria name in the taxonomy mapping properties file and saves the corresponding ID in attribute erTaxonomyCriteria.

If file data match more than one criteria, erTaxonomyCriteria attribute will hold list of corresponding ID’s.


·         Format of Taxonomy Mapping properties file:           

The activity and its corresponding ID should be specified in key value format as below:



Activity: Activity name.

Criteria _ID: ID or CODE of the Activity.

Please refer the note below.


A sample properties file is provided in adapter package.


To get information about Activities supported at your StealthBits environment refer section Criteria Data at StealthBits resource.


·         The values in taxonomy properties file should be in sync with the values in file used during the IGI bulk load.

·           If the properties file is not mentioned on service form OR if the properties file is not present at the specified path OR if any criteria is not specified in mapping file adapter will return ID value in StealthBits DLP Criteria table.



 Criteria Data at StealthBits resource.

In StealthBits SQL Database the DLP Criteria table (SA_FSDLP_Criteria) contains the sensitive data criteria which are selected for collection by the scan engine (data collector configuration).


Table1: Sample SA_FSDLP_Criteria table









Birth Records





Credit Cards















Tax Forms



While creating IGI bulk load file and taxonomy mapping properties file we can query StealthBits SQL table to get names of supported criteria.

For e.g SELECT Name FROM [SB SampleDB].[dbo].[SA_FSDLP_Criteria]

Here “SB SampleDB” is the SQL Database name configured with StealthBits application.


·         Criteria configuration at StealthBits end:

Criteria Setting and configuration can be done on StealthBits through Criteria Editor.

To get there navigate the Job Tree to the 1-SEEK System Scans job located in Jobs > FileSystem > 0. Collection. Open the Query Properties. From here, select SDD Audit Criteria Settings, and then the Edit button to open the Criteria Editor.  Here we can see the available criteria as well as we can setup our custom criteria.


Following content should be added to “Installing” chapter:

Installing the dispatcher:
If this is the first Tivoli® Directory Integrator-based adapter installation, you must install the RMI Dispatcher before you install the adapter. Install the RMI Dispatcher on the same Tivoli Directory Integrator server where you want to install the adapter.

If you already installed the RMI Dispatcher for another adapter, you do not need to reinstall it.

If you have not yet installed the RMI Dispatcher in the Tivoli Directory Integrator environment, download the Dispatcher installer from the IBM Passport Advantage website. For more information about the installation, see the Dispatcher Installation and Configuration Guide.

Installing the driver:

The StealthBits Adapter’s SDI Assembly-Line needs to connect to MS SQL server, we must copy the MS SQL jdbc driver to SDI.


Installing the adapter language pack

The adapters use a separate language package from the IBM Security Identity Server. See the IBM Security Identity Server Knowledge Centre  for information about installing the adapter language pack.

Customizing or Extending Adapter Features

The IBM Security Identity adapters can be customized and/or extended. The type and method of this customization may vary from adapter to adapter.

Getting Started

Customizing and extending adapters requires a number of additional skills. The developer must be familiar with the following concepts and skills prior to beginning the modifications:

Note: If the customization requires a new IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator connector, the developer must also be familiar with IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator connector development and working knowledge of Java programming language.

IBM Security Identity Server Resources:
